KNIFE MANUAL: Step 1: 7”EP

Mar 19, 2024

Featuring Razorcake contributor Ty Stranglehold on vocals, this is an eight-song skate punk/hardcore blast, urgent and catchy. I hear a mix of a bunch of things I love: Southern California skate punk, ’80s funny punkers like AOD or (fellow Canadians) Dayglo Abortions, with maybe a little Poison Idea/Jerry A-esque growl on top. Thinking about classic Canadian hardcore while listening to this, I followed this 7” listen by putting on the classic mid-’80s released First Impressions EP by Canadian band Genetic Control, and they segued into each other amazingly. This is a really good record by a band who wears their influences on their sleeve. Recommended! –Mark Twistworthy (Stiff Hombre, stiffhombre.bandcamp.com)
